A Google energy subsidiary was created last month for the internet giant to control their own energy destiny so to speak. They then applied for permission from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to buy and sell energy on the wholesale level. This would in turn allow the company to buy more renewable energy for its data centers that require quite a bit of power I’d wager.

Since Google is a huge proponent of carbon neutrality, they seem to think this move will help them become completely carbon neutral despite using large amounts of energy. Google of course has bought the global warming hoax hook, line and sinker. And anything the billion dollar corporation does in this regard will be seen as environmentally friendly.

Carbon offsets are a huge scheme of Al Gore who happens to be a pal of Larry Page and Sergey Brin, co-founders of Google. A Google energy subsidiary appears to be a little guilt relief for lefties looking to keep up their environmentally friendly image. Or it might be just another venture down the road of capitalism for a company that has used the capitalist system the way it was intended. Maybe that’s what they feel guilty about.

Google doesn’t declare where its data centers are or how much power they actually use, but you can bet for sure it has to be a hefty amount. Google announced in 2007 that they wanted to become carbon neutral. Doesn’t everybody? And like all good libs, they’re going to spend who knows how much money to make sure that the public “thinks” they’re carbon neutral. Because in reality, can you really ever be carbon neutral?

This Google energy subsidiary isn’t the first endeavor into the energy market for the “carbon friendly” company. They’ve partnered with a couple of energy companies to bring us the Google PowerMeter. It’s a device designed to take digital readings and show a home’s energy consumption. You know, to make you feel really guilty about destroying the planet while you’re freezing to death this winter.
